Neutrals and Brights

Neutrals and Brights

This first piece is one I made at the well being centre a few weeks ago. We were having an ‘explore/play day’. Cath had just come back from Ireland and brought some bog cotton to try, and I’d been given some tulle from one of the women from the craft group. I put some of the budget filling between the layers and also some ‘balls’ (maybe clouds is a better word!) of recycled plastic. Just enough so it wasn’t flat:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen I get a few spare minutes, I’m making some simple single colour felt pieces to use cut up and pieced together with other felt strips and offcuts. This is an orange piece I made, mostly Merino with a few embellishments:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI really like this green one, I got some ‘Chartreuse’ from World of Wool, I think this will replace the ‘Grass’ I usually buy. I did add a few wisps of grass over the top, and there are quite a few embellishments too:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is a BFL lock, a bit of green silk at the top right, and some trilobal nylon at the bottom:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is some crimped synthetic fibre, it’s soft and feels like arylic, but it didn’t have a label. I know it isn’t nylon, because I tried dyeing some:
